Are You an Effective, Synthetic Executive?

Blog
I'll share with you a secret from working with many global organizations - ninety nine percent of executives are analytical thinkers and one percent are synthetic thinkers. And the reason I say this is, I believe it to be true, I don't have any survey or scientific study on it. But just my observation over the years and even the one percent that are synthetic thinkers are usually in systems where they can't operate with their brains being in a synthetic mode. Efficiency is "doing things right" and being effective is "doing the right things."

Veteran, new and aspiring executives need methods to be successful in their organization.

The Effective Executive

Blog
There's the concept of being efficient versus being effective. You could be very efficient at running the meeting. But if the meeting is focused on the wrong things, then that efficiency isn't very effective. And some people use the metaphor of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. If you are efficient, you can look really good. "Oh, look at the empathy this executive shows." This isn't to say "empathy" isn't important but it won't make your organization better.  There are thousands, literally thousands of podcasts, leadership blogs, and things of that sort.
